Ian Samuels 'Myrna the Monster' (short film ft. Kathleen Hanna & YACHT)
Published Aug 04, 2015Earlier this year, we learned that punk icon Kathleen Hanna would be voicing an alien creature in the new short film Myrna the Monster. The 14-minute short debuted at Sundance, but it's now available online for the general public.
When it was first announced, director Ian Samuels offered the following explanation:
I was walking downtown a couple years ago thinking; if you actually dropped a real live alien from the moon on the street somewhere, probably no one would notice. Maybe she's originally from someplace else, or had some work done, or is homeless, or just rolled out of bed at noon, or maybe it's Hollywood. She's just over there, going through the dumpster by Starbucks.
Along with voiceover work from Hanna, the film also features music from YACH members Jona Bechtolt, Rob Kieswetter and Jeffrey Brodsky, working under the name BOYS.
